Review

Playa Larga - Playa Giron - Schweinebucht

The Bay of Pigs (Spanisch Bahía de Cochinos) with the beaches Playa Girón and Playa Larga is a bay at the south coast of Cuba. The bay builds the eastern edge of the Zapata-Peninsula. The name is not derived from pigs (span. cochinos), but from the Caribbean triggerfishes, which are also called cochinos. The fishes can be spotted by the offshore diving in this wonderful bay. 
The two dream beaches invite to relaxing and bathing.

Travel Details

Arrival                                                                                                           

The journey to the Bay of pigs goes from airport/city Havana via the highway A 1 or from Varadero with the transfer-vehicle through adorable tropical sceneries. On the way, with our individual transfers, you can always take a break for a coffee break, to take pictures or just to enjoy the scenery. 

The journey to the Bay of Pigs and Playa Larga and Playa Giron takes normally 2-3 hours. From Havana we take the highway A1 and continue our ride on the countryroad through the nature park Montemar and past Guama/Treasure lake (a wonderful excursion to the Taino village of the natives situated on lake islands) or from Varadero via countryroads past sugar cane fields and tropical sceneries. We recommend our "Drive Cuba" program for a stay in the Bay of Pigs, because with a car you can do some more wonderful excursions into the surroundings. Playa Giron has a distance of approximately 32 kilometers from Playa Larga, at the the other end of the Bay of Pigs.
